How I Live with Uncertainty (and How You Can, Too!)

I notice just how helpful and reassuring it is to hear stories from others who exemplify to me what it means to live an existence based on TRUST and “going with the flow.”

No matter how often I find myself in a position of uncertainty or change, it never seems to surprise me just how unfamiliar it can sometimes feel and just how valuable it is to hear others’ experiences that reaffirm for me once again just how possible it is to go through life without needing to control every little thing.

So that’s what I want to offer to you today. My story. My experience. Yet another one to add to your cauldron of examples how it IS possible to live an existence without fear, without stress, without anxiety.

My hope is that the more we share these examples, the more courage others can have when stepping out into the unknown for themselves.

In today’s video, you’ll learn the 4 things I do to feel less anxious and more confident amidst uncertainty (and how you can, too!).

Are You Taking a Vacation or a Suitcase Full of "Shoulds"?

Ah, summer vacation. 

Each year, I take a trip to northern Minnesota and spend a week at a lake cabin with my family.

Sometimes vacations stump me a little. Rather than feeling peaceful and relaxed, I feel conflicted and a little on edge.

This year, I mentioned something to my mother and she asked me a very insightful question that immediately helped me change the way I was viewing my time away.

Do you ever feel like your vacations are just another opportunity to “should” all over yourself or live up to yet another set of expectations?

In this video, I’m going to share with you the wise question my mother asked me and how it helped me go from conflicted to confident while on vacation. 

Just because we’re on vacation doesn’t mean we have to take a break from being true to ourselves. {Tweet that!}

Now it’s your turn! How do you stay true to yourself while taking time off?

Head on over to the blog or Facebook page to share your wisdom in the comments below this video. I would love to see what sort of conversation we can drum up.

So many of us look forward to what little vacation we usually take to begin with, yet how many of us actually spend that time without added pressure or expectations of what vacation “means”? Please pass this along to anyone you may know who could benefit from being reminded to stay true to themselves even when taking some much-needed time off.

With gratitude ...
